Build business impact with learning—Ara Ohanian at Inforum 2013
Not all learning management systems are created equal. So, how do you get the best from your LMS technologies? Ara Ohanian, formerly CEO of CERTPOINT and newly VP of Infor, shared his thoughts on how CERTPOINT’s recent acquisition by Infor promises to deliver powerful business impact at Infor’s annual customer conference, Inforum 2013.
Ara showcased how a significant step to business success comes from smart learning technologies. Enterprise should be driving knowledge not just to employees, but to partners, allies, service organizations – across the extended enterprise.
In a world of increasingly short shelf life, competitive advantage comes from rapid business-led learning with agile tools to continually keep proprietary knowledge fresh and business fresh, too.
For instance, Sonic’s investment in learning technologies helped it become one of the fastest-growing food companies in the world. At Toyota Europe, customer satisfaction soared to 16% within 18 months of launching Infor Learning Management (formerly CERTPOINT). At Stanley Black & Decker, product-to-market time dropped from four weeks to seven days thanks to our learning technologies. And our LMS delivered a $46 billion impact on TTI business within 30 months of launch.
Now we’re able to deliver even greater impact through CERTPOINT’s acquisition by Infor with a combined offering blending unified capital management and strategic learning in a seamless package to optimize talent performance. Our goal is simple: We want to deliver a best-in-class system to manage your HR-led activity, manage rapidly changing business-led content, and seamlessly bridge the gap, linking talent to knowledge. We offer an innovative, unified system bringing knowledge and people into a single solution. And this will drive the return-on-investment your organization needs for 21st century business.
